Symptoms of corneal ulcers include:
• Redness of the eye;
• Severe pain and soreness of the eye;
• The feeling of having something in your eye;
• Pus or other discharge;
• Blurred vision;
• Sensitivity to light;
• Swelling of the eyelids;
• A white spot on your cornea that you may or may not be able to see when looking in the mirror.
If you think you have a corneal ulcer or have any eye symptoms that concern you, it is important to see your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) immediately. If not treated, corneal ulcers can severely and permanently damage your vision and even cause blindness.
